WHAT IS BRAZILIAN JU-JITSU (BJJ)
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a grappling-based martial art where the aim is the control of a resisting opponent by taking them down to the ground. Once on the ground, the use of superior leverage, gripping and positioning can enable control and submission of a larger, stronger, more aggressive opponent. This knowledge is both physically and mentally demanding, it increases physical fitness, sensitivity, problem-solving abilities and self-awareness of body and mind.
We seek to train with anyone who is willing to open his or her mind to quality martial arts without ego, and to learn in a relaxed, friendly yet competitive environment. We stay true to the theory that our classes favour technique and efficiency of movement over brute force, and will not tolerate any aggressive attitudes or disrespectful behaviour in our gym.
Respect is earned here through dedication to training and a friendly and polite attitude inside and outside the classes. Equip yourself with the ability to effectively defend yourself, or the technique to excel in competition, achieving self-discipline, obtaining a healthy body and mind, and gaining great friends along the way. We look forward to training with you!
